Ethnic Studies Summit 2022

Please join us for our first annual Ethnic Studies Summit!

Friday, March 4 from 1-3 p.m. via Zoom

Meet Melanie Cervantes

The summit brought together local high school students and Foothill College students for an afternoon that included student speakers and information about Ethnic Studies at Foothill College.

Our keynote speaker was the award-winning artist and activist Melanie Cervantes (Xicanx), co-founder of Dignidad Rebelde. Melanie creates visual art inspired by her communities' desire for radical social transformation.

This Ethnic Studies Summit is meant to introduce and promote Ethnic Studies to our students so they will walk away with a better understanding of how to apply Ethnic Studies to their education, apply it to their lives, and ultimately to take an Ethnic Studies course.
